In her second book, the author’s development has grown to enhance her writing. Once again with stories of life and elements of history the poems of short length weave amongst each other to inspire and enlighten. Poems like ‘Black Souls’ and ‘Blind eyes become open’ tackle the plight found in black history in a sensitive manner. A focused pattern of poems have elements of nature, which bring a sense of life and lightness to often deeper subjects. The short length of the majority of poems often leave you wanting extra verses. It resembles an author who sometimes runs out of steam when starting so strongly in her work. However despite this shortcoming, the book is a recommended read and this is an author to watch develop further in her writing.
